The Champion mine is well known to Colorado collectors for producing some attractive Rhodochrosite, but specimens are seldom available on the market. This piece features dozens of sharp, beautiful pink color rhombohedra of Rhodochrosite forming semi-"rosette"-shaped groups associated with and sitting on Quartz matrix. You can see a bit of sparkling golden Chalcopyrite dotting the Rhodos for a really nice touch. The largest crystal of Rhodochrosite measures 3 mm. This is certainly an above average specimen, not to mention that it's nearly a full-sized cabinet display piece, which is rare from this hard to find locality in southwestern Colorado.
Locality: Champion Mine, near Lake City, Cinnamon Pass, Park District, Hinsdale County, Colorado
Specimen Size: 9.0 x 5.8 x 4.5 cm (small cabinet)
